CNMAT Research

Adrian Freed, Research Director

Focus

We bring scientific and engineering tools and resources to bear on musical problems and issues. Our particular emphasis is new performance technology and performance-related research issues and problems such as real-time synthesis and control.

In addition to the high standards of scholarship expected from a world-class research University, CNMAT researchers face the additional rigors of multidisciplinary collaborations and the requirement to put working tools into musician's hands.

Tools

CNMAT researchers enjoy the unprecedented intellectual and cultural environment of a large, diverse campus and an exceptional library system. CNMAT's specialized facilities are designed and maintained to support world class work in many areas.
